Law Day 2018 - Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom

The U.S. Constitution designates a system of government with three branches - legislative, executive, and judicial - and outlines how these branches interact. This sharing of power, also reflected in the Michigan Constitution, provides a framework of freedom for our state and nation.

American Bar Association Law Day

5/1/2018
  

MootCtES.jpgDuring this week-long day program, high school students argue a moot court case as if before the Supreme Court. Participants meet and work with a variety of legal professionals while enhancing their writing, research, and public speaking skills.


The case | The defendant was convicted of armed robberies based, in part, on several months of cell phone location history obtained by law enforcement from his cell provider without a warrant. Is government tracking your whereabouts through cell phone records a search under the Fourth Amendment? Does the government need a warrant to do this? Participants will argue and decide.


Application - Deadline May 25


Please contact Rachael L. Drenovsky, drenovskyr@courts.mi.gov or 517-373-5027, with any questions.
